After featuring a long list of Ramadan buffets (I have compared about 20 buffets here so click –> http://www.rebeccasaw.com/list-of-ramadan-buffets-in-kl-for-buka-puasa-this-2014/), I’m now looking for Ramadan set dinners.
Well I haven’t sampled many as I didn’t have much time; but I remembered that I was at The Loaf recently and the launch of their new Asian cuisines menu was worth checking out!
The Loaf’s Ramadan set is a reasonable price of RM19.90 and you can choose from Ayam Percik, Rendang Jawa or Nasi Goreng Kampung.
I didn’t try the set per se but prior to Ramadan I was at The Loaf to sample the Asian menu and overall I find the offerings well executed.
We started with some appetizers and what’s better to kick things off than one of my favourite dish – the Gado-Gado.
I love Gado-Gado in general as it has a good mix of different components; different types of vegetables with varying textures and a hard-boiled egg, my all time favourite protein choice.
Mix all these with the flavorful peanut sauce, it is a one-dish meal for me!
A good alternative to the Gado- Gado is the the Stuffed Beancurd – RM6.00. Low in carbohydrates and high in protein, the beancurd is deep-fried but it wasn’t the slightest bit greasy.
Soy bean are great protein alternatives to meat, and the fillings of fresh vegetables provides good fibres to the start of a meal.
I’m liking the Nyonya Chicken Wing – RM16.00 as well, especially when I read that these delectable fresh herbs and curry powder marinated wings are not fried, but baked in the oven for a perfect taste.
The result is juicy wings minus the grease.
A bowl of hearty soup is wonderful after a whole day of fasting or whenever you’re hungry yes?
The Asian Oxtail rich broth here at The Loaf comes thicken with potato and spices and served with thick slice of soft toast. It is a rather complete meal by itself, considering the tender meat that you can pick off the bones.
RM12.00 for a bowl.
For the mains, take your pick of noodles, burger or rice.
Opt for the Siamese Laksa (RM21.00) if you’re in the mood for a bowl of creamy and rich noodles; else the spicy Thai Curry Noodle – RM24.00 is a good bet to satisfy any chilli fan.
I’m a fan of neither since I didn’t like the stock for both.
Burgers however, are my weakness.
This is so cute too. A mini burger with Rendang inside, this chunk of beef topside with the broth, thick and rich Rendang Sauce is almost playful but a solid meal nonetheless (for a small eater).
Rendang Jawa RM16.00.
Now the best part, desserts!
The Loaf has introduced 2 new desserts, both of which combined all my favourite things so as expected I’m giving both double thumbs up! 🙂
Hokkaido Honey Toast – Chocolate Banana RM19.80..
Is description necessary? I doubt.
Ice cream, chocolate, banana and super fluffy toast coated in honey. I’ll let your imagination run wild. 😀
Hokkaido Honey Toast – Vanilla Mixed Fruits RM19.80.
For the same price, I’ll say the Chocolate Banana version is more bang for the buck.
I managed to sample some of the baked items that is currently their July specials and I can tell you that the Earl Grey Almond Toast is amazingly good! So stay tuned to my upcoming post! 🙂
